Like most of Filipino families, we would spend Christmas alternating between the mother-side of the family and the father-side. This Christmas, both of our parents are in the US for the first time so we celebrated Christmas with our siblings and cousins.
The night before Christmas. Aidan kept on asking me if it is Christmas already and we did a Christmas Day countdown.
Our Christmas Eve dinner with Rache siblings turned into a Thanksgiving dinner with a huge Turkey as the centerpiece.
Every Christmas, taking a family portrait picture is already part of the Christmas tradition.
Mrs. and Miss Santa Claus 🙂
Over to our family side, we had a family reunion with my mother-side cousins from Laguna.
Aidan was playing until 2am in the morning on Christmas Eve…
Christmas for Aidan meant opening gifts, play time all day with his cousins, and NO computer time 🙂
The day after Christmas with new toys and happy family memories…
